Kill Devil Hills
Beach Nourishment Update
Please note: The below email includes the most recent information the Town has received and it is subject to change by the contractor at any time.
The beach construction for Kill Devil Hills’ nourishment project began on Monday, June 13th. The project began around First Street and moved south to Prospect Avenue. The contractors shifted their work to the north and are working to complete construction to the KDH/Kitty Hawk Town border. As of today, construction is occurring between Third Street Beach Access and 1915 North Virginia Dare Trail.
The contractors have been using a sub-line located at the First Street Beach Access landing site; however, they are nearing the end of that line’s usage. (Sub-lines are the pipes used to pump sand from the dredge onto the beach.) Tomorrow morning, the contractors plan to transition to a sub-line that is located at the Walker Street Beach Access landing site. This sub-line is already in place. They will be moving additional equipment down the beach early tomorrow morning and hope to start pumping again mid to late afternoon, pumping south from Walker Street.
